Deutsch: Historisches Bild zur Märzrevolution 1848; jubelnde Revolutionäre nach Barrikadenkämpfen am 18./19.? März 1848 in der Breiten Straße in Berlin.
Auf dem Bild erkennt man zum einen in der Mitte und am unteren Bildrand die Flaggen der monarchistischen Revolutionäre. Diese stritten für eine Deutsche Einheit mit einem Monarchen an der Spitze Deutschlands. Auf der rechten Seite des Bildes findet man zwei Flaggen der republikanischen Revolutionäre. Diese wollten eine Republik nach französischem Vorbild errichten - daher auch eine schwarz-rot-goldene Trikolore.
Die Ausrichtung der drei Farben auf den revolutionären Flaggen variierte.
English: Iconic picture of the 1848 revolution in Berlin.
In the painting one can recongnize in the middle and on the bottom edge the flag of the monarchist Revolutionaries. They wanted a unified Germany with a monarch at its head. On the right side one can see two flags of the republican Revolutionaries. They wanted a Republic based on the French example and therefore constructed their flag with vertical stripes, in the style of the French Tricolor.
The orientation of the three colors on the revolutionary German Tricolors varied.
